2001 Lincoln LS Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Lincoln? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Lincoln tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your LS towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my LS's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Lincoln LS transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Lincoln. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Can Lincoln LS transmission fluid leak? Yes. Lincoln LS transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.

  • Should I avoid driving my Lincoln LS if there is a transmission fluid leak? It’s not advisable to drive your LS if it’s leaking transmission fluid.

You might even experience transmission failure.
